Napoleon Hill is famous as the originator of private development. His influential books and thoughts have helped countless people to attain their own goals for decades now. Napoleon Hill dedicated twenty-five decades of his life studying the why of people collapse. From the brilliant ideas and research of one of America’s greatest self-evident writers, here are seventeen Napoleon Hill quotes to inspire you to consider greatness…
I think twice before I speak, because only your words can plant the seed of success or failure in my mind. Napoleon Hill said,”I have learned that what a man can do, that a person can accomplish.” Never underestimate the power of the spoken word, especially when it comes to achieving your goals. Napoleon Hill said,”A man with the skill to work successfully and economically, but who does not expect to be successful, is like a man with a wheel who does not know how to use his tool; he thinks but does not do.”
I think twice before I do, because only your thoughts on a definite goal and action can prepare you for it and set you free. Napoleon Hill said,”You have to be assured that the power of thought and of action are joined, and that these two are inseparable.” The brain controls your body and soul, your spirit controls your mind. Napoleon Hill said,”A man is but the product of his thoughts what he’s done, and the man of actions is but the consequence of his ideas, preparations, and efforts.”
If you can’t do great things in a great way, do small things in a great way. Napoleon Hill wrote,”I often hear it said, don’t go beyond your skills. Nothing can be farther from the truth. You may reach your targets but do not go beyond your attainments.”
Napoleon Hill said,”A man’s work isn’t done when his work is completed; a man’s job is started then and continued continually.” Would you like your dreams, desires, and aims to be accomplished? Then first comes believed, then there’s an implementation, then there is measuring, and then there’s seeing the end results. Napoleon Hill wrote,”First come the ideas, then come the implementation, then are the measures, and last but not least will be the joy of this result.”
Napoleon Hill also stated,”The limits of the human mind are permeable; neither can they be unseen, even though the soul may escape for some time the scrutiny of the ordinary person.” Do not set forth your objectives, keep them within your reach, for when you have achieved them you will be able to see and know their greatness. If you can’t accomplish anything in your life by the power of your will alone, then it is not within the scope of your energy, for will is only an outward form of the interior force that moves outwards toward its goal.
Napoleon Hill also stated,”If you expect to climb to the top of the mountain by keeping steadily in place, you will fail; continue moving, and before you know it you will be standing at the top with the mountain in your back.” Both poverty and riches are the offspring of the same mind, the mind which think a goal is a dream with a physical goal, and that when that objective is achieved there’s no need to continue working to achieve it. A positive mind sees a way it can become a success, and a negative mind looks for all the reasons why it can not or won’t.
Napoleon Hill was right about many things, and in his book Think and Grow Rich, he explained why there are no limitations to the mind except those we construct. That is why he said,”The greatest discovery of my generation is that a man can alter his life by altering the thought which he receives from his environment.” Thus, if you believe there are no reasons why you can’t become a success and poverty and wealth won’t stop flowing, then you are either unaware of them, or you’re creating them yourself. You can make a difference in this world and take control of your own destiny.
